repair=yes  (I'm sure you can name space this if you want*)

What I'm saying is that I've actually not seen a diy bicycle repair
station, but I've seen the other two and tagged one of them. It would
be in the best interest of everybody to be as inclusive as possible in
the basic tag so also including other sports might be usefull (I don't
know depends on what people are tagging at this moment).
